You may think we post some pretty far out stuff on Vault-Co. Sometimes we do. Everything is relative. The truth is, most of the stuff we post here is nearly as plain as the nose on a man's face. It only sounds weird to a person who reads and writes at a 2nd/3rd grade level and has spent the past thirty years of their life deriving most of their information about the universe from watching TV. There are a lot of people, numbered mainly amongst those who read, write and think well, that wouldn't be much surprised by anything that was ever posted up here. The problem is there aren't many people like that left in the world.
This is going to sound far-out. You need to read it and think about it. It may very well answer an awful lot of questions about life, the universe and everything. Forget about all the partisan squabbling, ethnic nepotism and other petty corruptions that infest the festering ruins of what was once Western civilization.
What if we were to present a kind of unified theory of decay that explained the primary reason that all societies decline and collapse, usually within two centuries of being founded? What if there was a common link that neatly wrapped up the primary principle that governs the decline of human societies? I think recently a lot of people have started to figure it out. I personally may have been just another idiot chopping at the branches of evil, I think this new paradigm may be hacking at the root.
What if I told you that the end-to-end history of a society was a curve describing one single graduated change, a delta that passed through all the points that we routinely list as symptomatic of failing societies? What if there was a common meme that explained the entire thing in one neat sentence?
Big enough buildup? Ready yet? Here we go.
THE DECLINE OF CIVILIZATIONS IS BEST SUMMARIZED AS THE PROCESS BY WHICH THE FOUNDERS OF A CIVILIZATION, WHO ARE SINCERE AND SINGLEMINDED, ARE GRADUALLY REPLACED IN THE PRIMARY INSTITUTIONS BY PSYCHOPATHS AND SOCIOPATHS, WHO ARE NEVER SINCERE AND NEVER OF ONE MIND. THE DECAY OF A SOCIETY IS MEASURED BY IT'S MIGRATION FROM HONEST AND STRAIGHT MINDS INTO THE CONTROL OF THOSE WHO ARE AMBIGUOUS AND INFINITELY TWISTED.
Yes, sometimes this migration isn't even of the same ethnic group that founded a civilization. Often the psychopaths of one ethnic group will prey on another in the midst of it's decline by replacing them slowly through a process of elimination. In other societies, psychopaths from the same gene pool will irregardless betray their own people - because ultimately a psychopath has no allegiances to anyone, of any kin group. The only good for such a man/woman is what is good for them.
The process by which psychopaths and sociopaths gradually come to replace real humans throughout institutions is properly called the study of pathocracy. Sometimes pathocracies claim to be freedom loving, but most of the time they masquerade under socialist and marxist umbrellas of supposedly altruist motives. The pathocracy is essentially a crude affair tied to the simple biology of dominance that can be seen in any tribe of primates. It may have a thousand different forms, all of them designed to one end - to control others, foremost their money/resources / property, followed by their minds and even perceptions. Socialism is a pathocracy by it's very nature, despite it being a response by psychopaths to cure ills that they themselves manufactured to justify socialism to begin with.
A society has not reached the final stage of pathocracy until even people born genetically normal or mentally healthy are themselves compelled to behave in psychopathic or sociopathic fashion in order to survive in a civilization ruled by them. In other words, where at long last, honesty is the worst policy of them all. Such a society cannot last long by it's very nature, no matter how brutal. It simple does not have the prerequisites to remain stable before disintegrating into internal power struggles and final chaos.
